Re: Graphic showing how the working groups are related

Dear all,

I very much like that picture, Elisabeth, good job to the one (or the few) who created it. I don't want to be picky, but I'm afraid that Systems & Health gets blown out of the picture by the next storm... can you drag it into the centre of the picture, above Conveyance? Cause it also relates to the functional groups creating a system. What do others think?

Cheers, Andrea

Re: Graphic showing how the working groups are related

Hi Rahul,

good idea to bring in the sun! I think for the first three topics it fits them well, but I liked O&M where it was before, in the centre of the system/functional groups. Why can't it stay there?

Cheers,
andrea

Re: Graphic showing how the working groups are related

I agree with Andrea: I don't think that O&M should be in the same "overarching" category (inside of the sun), as the other ones, but rather be a cloud in the centre of the system like it was before.

Just about the genesis of this schematic: It was Rahul's idea to add the sun. I had the idea to use the clouds and the sanitaiton chain, and it was Christian's idea to use the background picture from Sanitation 21 which had also been used by Sandec together with the sanitation chain. So a real team effort. (and Leonie and Dorothee had done some groundwork with earlier designs, which we disarded though in the end (sorry))
We have now given this to a professional designer to add the finishing touches and beauty!

Stay tuned and keep commenting, it is not yet too late to make some modifications.

Re: Graphic showing how the working groups are related

Dear all,

The factsheet compilation is very, very close to completion now, in fact we are already discussing how many copies we should print initially and whether in colour or black and white.

We have engaged a designer to help us with the cover and back page, as well as the graphic showing how the working groups are interrelated. He has come up with some nice stuff, I think, and I would like to invite you for a last quick round of comments (no major changes are possible anymore because our contract with him is only small, but incremental changes or corrections are still possible until Wednesday).

Oh and if you are interested in ordering a copy of the book (free of charge), please e-mail us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We should have it in our hands by about 2 weeks from now.

Re: Your feedback and comments about the factsheet compilation

Great work, thanks for your efforts!
I like the design of the graphic (although I would have kept O&M in the centre...) and I like the design of the cover.
Only remarks:
- Remains the design visible if you are printing black/white copies?
- The cover page looks quite African (what I can live with) and it is a pitty than Annie has closed eyes...)

Re: Graphic showing how the working groups are related

Hi All

I have been a passive reader of this thread to date.

My comments on the graphics from the designer:

1. I think the cover pages (SuSanA-title-2.3) look great! ;)
2. I think a number of the WG titles need to be shifted a bit on the graphic (SuSanA_Grafik_2.3).

My suggestions for slight shifting of WG titles (starting with WG 7 moving clockwise around the graphic)
WG 7 title should be moved slightly down to be more in line with the house (I am aware that there are space and overlap considerations here, but I think it can be moved down a bit still).
WG 9 should be centred in alignment under the caption "Conveyance" i.e. moved slightly left from its current position.
Wg 10 should move slightly downwards
WG 6 is oddly aligned, I would move it down below the "pipe" of the image for "treatment"
WG 3 should be on the intersection line between "treatment" and "reuse or disposal"
WG 5 should be on the intersection line between "reuse or disposal" and "collection, storage, basic treatment"
WG 11 is good where it is.

Last thing, IMO the image chosen for "treatment" gives the graphic a flavour of a centralised treatment plant.

Re: The factsheet compilation is finished!

Dear all,

You may have already seen my announcement on the SuSanA facebook page, and also the news service "Sanitation Update" already announced it on Saturday:

The SuSanA factsheet compilation is finally finished! :ohmy:

You can access the online version here:
www.susana.org/lang-en/library?view=ccbktypeitem&type=2&id=1229

You can access the individual factsheets as separate pdf files here:
www.susana.org/lang-en/library/rm-susana-publications

See here the announcement on Sanitation Updates (a very useful e-mail news service, by the way, run/supported by IRC and USAID):
sanitationupdates.wordpress.com/2012/05/...e-sanitation-topics/

And below see the graphic on the cover page, as well as the graphic about the working groups which we have discussed at great length here on this forum and via e-mail (and which now looks totally different, thanks to our graphic designer):

Graphic on cover page:

Schematic to show interrelationships of working groups and sanitation chain:

I have attached them as jpg files - feel free to use them in your own powerpoint presentations about SuSanA.

We have a very nice foreword by Uschi Eid (Vice Chair of UNSGAB; UNSGAB stands for United Nation Secretary General's Advisory Board for Water and Sanitation), for which I want to thank Uschi Eid very much, as well as her advisor, Nicole Kranz who helped us to make the connection!

I copy here what I wrote in the acknowledgement section of the publication:

We thank all the authors and contributors to these factsheets who have often volunteered their own private time, outside of their normal work commitments, to work on this. Their names are given on the following pages.

I also wish to thank my team at the SuSanA secretariat – which is hosted by GIZ in Germany – who were part of this factsheet compilation process since July 2011 and who have helped to raise the quality of the factsheets to a consistently high standard, in terms of content as well as layout: Enno Schröder, Martina Winker, Philipp Feiereisen, Christian Rieck, Doreen Mbalo and Bismark Yeboah. Special thanks are due to Leonie Kappauf and Rahul Ingle from my team who worked on numerous factsheets and the layout, as well as to Trevor Surridge who proof-read the entire compilation and gave detailed critical feedback on each factsheet. We are also grateful to Sunder Subramanian, a SuSanA member from India, for writing the first version of the executive summary.

Re: The factsheet compilation is finished!

P.S. And just after I posted the above, a few parcels arrived at our office: 4 boxes with the factsheet compilation books, and 3 boxes of new SuSanA DVDs - just in time so that I can take them with me to the SuSanA meeting next week in Cairo (and that we can start sending them out to people who request them). (note the DVD is meant only for people with slow internet access: it contains as much of the SuSanA website as what could be squeezed onto a DVD)

We took a few happy snaps in the office to share with you our excitement about these finished products. You see on this photo myself, Enno (responsible for the SuSanA DVD) and Bismark (our intern from Ghana who helped us since mid March with the factsheet compilation); Rahul is in South Sudan otherwise he should have been on the picture as well.

It is important to celebrate such happy moments...
